Working to Fail or Why I Train

Posted by piphunt on November 6, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

Failure isn’t something many of us readily accept in our daily lives. After all, it is un-American to fail. But as the cliché goes, failure can make us stronger. Ironically, I’ve been pushing myself to the point of failure a lot lately. Bailing on squats, cleans, or dead lifts has become part of my daily […]

Gluten Free Pumpkin Gnocchi

Posted by piphunt on November 2, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

I grew up on gnocchi. My mum served these hearty, little potato dumplings with a creamy, gorgonzola cream sauce that was so undeniable it had all the waitresses sopping up the extra sauce with chunks of bread. Sadly, my days of traditional style gnocchi and gorgonzola cream sauce are over. But, I won’t let this […]

A Lazy Saturday Morning

Posted by piphunt on November 2, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

Saturday mornings are my day to lie in a little, sip on a hot cup of tea and whip up something delicious and a little different than my midweek fair in the kitchen. This week, the brisk, cloudy weather made me crave something a little on the heartier side, and what better way to get […]

Dry Land Move of the Week

Posted by piphunt on October 28, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

Pre -season ski training usually means squat, jump, deadlift, squat, jump into a squat and squat some more. This move isn’t anything different, just with a bit of a twist.

Tight Spots

Posted by piphunt on October 26, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

I train hard. I play hard. I work hard. I eat, a lot. I do little in moderation, and generally abuse, overuse and exhaust my body daily. I eat frequently throughout the day to keep my energy going, and try to catch seven hours of sleep a night. But no matter what I put in […]



A Little Kitchen Experiment

Posted by piphunt on October 22, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness, The Little Chef

The leaves are changing, cider is on the stove and pumpkin carving is in full swing. It’s definitely fall. As much as I love snuggling up in warm sweaters with a cup of hot cocoa on my back porch and watching the leaves fall, I think my favorite part of fall is squash. Pumpkin squash, […]

Getting a Little Creative

Posted by piphunt on August 26, 2010 in Fitness

I love to travel. I love to pick up, and leave the familiar behind. But there is also a part of me that loves routine. My morning routine of eggs, tea, and reading, my (almost) daily ride down to SLC Crossfit , and the total control I have of eating whatever I have that comes […]

Remember, resting is important

Posted by piphunt on July 22, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

Let’s face it, some days I just wake up feeling like crap. I love to play hard, I have to work hard, and sometimes the combination takes its toll on body. Like yesterday, my alarm clock went off at 8, I hit sleep more times than I can count, and rolled out of bed with […]

One thing being injured has allowed me to do is cook, a lot. If I’m sitting around the house watching it rain outside, I may as well be doing something productive! Plus, I really enjoy cooking/baking in large quanities so that I can freeze some for another day!

Happy Easter!

Posted by piphunt on April 4, 2010 in Fitness, The Little Chef

What better way to celebrate Easter than with a little bit of arts and crafts? My friend Lindsay and I decided to get the festivities going a little bit early this week, we spent our Friday night in decorating Easter eggs. But not just any old Easter eggs… MONSTER eggs. Now we’re heading to the […]
